Friends of the Pleistocene

4-6 October 2002: Greenbrier County, West Virginia

Led by Greg Springer, this trip will explore the balance of physical versus chemical erosion in rivers and karst in the scenic mountains of southeastern West Virginia. Highlights include exploration of Buckeye Creek Cave (about 5 miles of large passages with abundant speleothems) and the incised Greenbrier River canyon with 200-m-high bedrock cliffs. In the gorge, you may take the challenge and jump off a 6-m high boulder into the creek below.
